Photographer's Note

A Jazz Charity doo was held at the week-end in Framlingham, View WORKSHOP to see more. The Original New Orleans Jazz Band was one of the first jazz bands to make recordings. Composed of mostly New Orleans musicians, the band was popular in New York City in the late 1910s.
The group were some of the first New Orleans style players to follow the Original Dixieland Jass Band's success in playing in Manhattan. Like the "ODJB", most were veterans of Papa Jack Laine's groups in New Orleans. Recordings of the group were issued by Gennett Records and Okeh Records. The group reportedly also recorded for Emerson Records, which seem to have never been issued.
Jimmy Durante, the only New Yorker in the group, became well known for his showmanship and took over leadership from Frank Christian in 1920 and the group was renamed "Jimmy Durante's Jazz Band".Info Wiki
